Maternal Serine Supplementation Prevents Offspring from Oxidative Stress by Epigenetical Mechanism[Jun 25, 2018]

Researchers in the Institute of Subtropical Agriculture, in collaboration with researchers in China Jiliang University, investigated the effects of maternal serine during pregnancy on HFD-induced oxidative response in offspring. They found that markers of oxidative status and lipid levels, in weanlings from dams fed the HFD and administrated with 1% serine, were lower than those of weanlings from dams only fed the HFD.

Researchers Review Detailed Mechanmis of Excited-State Proton Transfer[Jun 25, 2018]

A research group led by Prof. HAN Keli from the Dalian Institute of Chemical Physics reported an advanced review paper. This review briefly summarized the research progress on the mechanism of excited-state proton transfer (ESPT) from HAN's group since 2009, discussed the advantages and disadvantages of different theoretical methods on describing the potential energy surface of the ESPT, and provided an outlook of the opportunity and challenge ahead of the research area.

Plant Fossil Archives Implicate Climate Change in Tibet's Southeastern Margin[Jun 25, 2018]

Researchers from Xishuangbanna Tropical Botanical Garden and their collaborators used radiometrically dated plant fossil assemblages to seek uplift, climate and biotic changes at the Eocene-Oligocene transition in southeast Tibet. They got their research result published in National Science Review.


Chinese Researchers Achieve Highly Sensitive and Selective Alcohol Gas Sensor[Jun 25, 2018]

N-butanol, a kind of alcohol gas, is widely used in chemical production. However, long-time exposure to it may cause damage to human health with several symptoms, such as headache, dizzy, drowsiness, dermatitis and so on. Generally, Iron oxide, as a kind of semiconductor, is applied in alcohol gas detection, which yet is defected with low sensitivity and selectivity. A Chinese study team led by LI Minqiang with Institute of Intelligent Machines, Hefei Institutes of Physical Science prepared comparetively highly sensitive and selective alcohol gas sensors.


Rapid and Efficient Oil-Water Separation Achieved by Newly-developed Particles[Jun 22, 2018]

Recently, researchers from the Technical Institute of Physics and Chemistry have developed an emulsion interfacial polymerization approach to synthesize anisotropic Janus particles with controllable topological and chemical anisotropy. This method can also be expanded to large-area fabrication of two-dimensional Janus film actuators.


Updated Hematopoietic Hierarchy Proposed[Jun 22, 2018]

A research team led by LIU Feng from the Institute of Zoology reported hematopoietic hierarchy - an updated roadmap in a review. They pinpointed that hematopoiesis underwent distinct differentiation paths under different physiological conditions, which indicated that invasive or native experimental methods would generate different hematopoietic outcomes.
